Nothing is more important to our success than dedicated volunteers. Volunteers with the lived experience of mental illness are needed to lead support groups and classes-both for individuals with a diagnosis and for those who are caregivers.

  • Family-to-Family Course Teachers
  • NAMI Basics Course Teachers
  • Respite Providers for NAMI Basics courses and support groups
  • Family Support Group Facilitators
  • NAMI Basics Support Group Facilitators

Volunteer opportunities for individuals with a diagnosis of mental illness include:

  • NAMI Connection Support Group Facilitators
  • In Our Own Voice Presenters
  • Peer-to-Peer Facilitators

Other volunteer opportunities include

  • Legislative Network
  • HELPLine Phone Associate
  • Special Events: Walk each May and Gala/Auction each November
  • Board Members
  • Ambassadors (represent NAMI St. Louis in the community)
